Hailing from a tiny village outside of Stoke-On-Trent, UK, PLASMID, as they originally were called, started as a three piece politically-themed Hardcore, Punk three-piece, after releasing one demo tape, they added an additional bassist and soon changed their name into HERESY. Together with other bands like NAPALM DEATH, EXTREME NOISE TERROR, RIPCORD, UNSEEN TERROR, ... , HERESY were an important part of the first wave of fast and brutal Hardcore, Thrashcore, early Grindcore bands coming fronm the UK. The Eighties were a good time for extreme Hardcore, Punk bands and so it´s no wonder that the band HERESY became very well-known in the international Punk scene (even in these days) and a lot of people call them a "legend".
This here is the story behind this special re-release:
" If you mention HERESY's "Face Up To It !" album many people will tell you what a great album it was, let down by horrendous production. Now, 30 years since it was recorded, the band undertook a mammoth project to make the album finally sound how they had envisaged.
The original multi track master tapes were unearthed and baked to allow a transfer of all the raw recorded material and for the band to do a totally ground up restoration / remix on not only the original album, but also the rest of the session that included the bonus tracks originally only released on the Japanese version of the album "Voice Your Opinion".
To say that the results have been remarkable would be an understatement and have exceeded the bands own expectations - turns out underneath the muddy production there was a phenomenal album just waiting to get out !
So we proudly present "Face Up To It ! in 2018, sounding as the band hoped it would in 1988 ! Featuring liner notes from all band members."
"Face Up To It !" is the bands´one and only full album release originally brought out by IN YOUR FACE RECORDS, UK in the year 1988.
Three sided double album on Black vinyl, compiling the original "Face Up To It !" LP plus the eight bonus tracks of the japanese "Face Up To It !" pressing, which was released on DOGMA RECORDS, Japan in the year 1988 under the name "Voice Your Opinion". This here is the first pressing which is housed in a full-coloured gatefold sleeve, an 60 cm x 30 cm insert with lyrics, photos and liner notes and a CD (digital version of all twenty-six songs) is included too.
